In my last post I talked about a couple of Art/Astronomy competitions, namely the Humans in Space Youth Art Competition  and the Hubble’s Hidden Treasures 2012 Contest. Check the links or the last post for details.

If you are not an artist but still like to contemplate the large cosmological ideas, particularly, is there life on other planets… this may be the competition for you. The University of Chicago is offering a large prize for an international essay writing competition for High School and College students.

The High School Topic is

Are we alone in the Universe?
Or, are there other life and intelligence beyond the solar system?

The Due Date: 15th June 2012.

All details, FAQs, registration, etc can be found on the New Cosmic Frontiers website.

Get creating and good luck!
